bear sterns. this is about fha-insured mortgages that the government says that wells fargo was misrepresenting to get fha insurance on these mortgages for a period of some ten years. they say about $190 million worth of mortgages may have been misrepresented, essentially ripping off the taxpayers for this fha insurance. under the law, the government could recover triple damages. this is a $570 million suit against wells fargo. we're following it. we'll teep you posted. back to you. >> just off the lows, scott, thank you very much. we're heading toward the close, otherwise, with about 30 minutes left. the dow down 100 points at this hour. when we come back, we look at the health of wall street. new york state comptroller on the looming -- whether the looming fiscal cliff and increasing regulation are threatening wall street's comeback these days. plus, speaking of which, nearly half of all wall streeters are expecting a bigger bonus this year. will they get it in and more importantly, do they deserve it? that debate is coming up. and from bull market speed bump to chaos. bre
potentially from higher taxes and indeed reduced government spending. >> rick santelli, you heard that whole list of reasons. is that why we saw this ten-year auction today? people gobbling up ten-year government debt at these extremely low yields because they think they're not going to get much better elsewhere? sounds like people don't think there's a lot of growth coming. >> i think there's a little bit of truth in all of it. i'll bring up another point. i think october, a lot of mutual funds ahave the end of their fiscal year. it's been a good run for stocks. the spread between what the stock market is telling us and the economy is pretty wide. the election, depending how it turns out, could have a lot of implications. to me, it makes perfect sense the closer we get to the end of the year, the closer we get to november, people are going to be lightening up. it all makes sense. >> yeah, and mandy, you were highlighting earlier oil is lower, gold is lower. a lot of the base materials have been suffering as well today. >> yeah, that's absolutely true. you know, i think what's also interesti

we saw around government shutdown where is they tiptoe and dance all the way up until the last minute and then get it done. we already know they're having meetings right now figuring out the end to that crisis. so i think that we're going to build it up and build it up and it's all going go away. i really think that what we're going to see with this market right now is a continuation of this slow, steady, up trend. there's no real reason right now to take it out. >> rick, what do you think? how about the 30-year treasury auction today? a lot soft, but i guess that would be expected at that yield, right? >> yeah, well, i think it was a bit soft for sure. the post-auction, all the auctions being done really gave us a big rally afterwards. the best way to get a dugout filli ined with varying personalities is to pick a new manager. i think if we pick a new manager, that will lead into the fiscal cliff being changed in a way that won't give us the big hiccup in the market. i also agree with jim though. i think what could happen is if mitt wins, there's going to be a big rally. then there's
